# of nights in hospital?



Recommended Posts

1 night. Surgery at 230p and out the next evening at 530p.

Could've stayed another night. Felt crappy but thought it better to be crappy at home.

I was told to expect 3 nights. I had surgery 12/30/13 in the early a.m. I woke up with lots of sharp chest pains which radiated to my heart. They started running heart test xs 3 to check my enzymes n make sure no heart attack. Day 2 same issue, very badly, they diagnosed it as esophageal spasms. I was told I also had a hernia repaired. Day 2 n 3 I was taken down for leak test, too painful to swallow (spasms) too swollen for liq to pass threw, nvr really " passed" the test, so doc made me npo and I ended up stayn a week n a day. They finally let me drink Friday n since I cud tol liq pain free, they decided to let me go today, Praise God. So far so good, just can't get comfy. Gla.

I was in 4 nights. I was a revision from band to sleeve and I had a lot of complications. the surgery itself took over 4 hours due to scar tissue (from the lap band and from a previous spleenectomy). After surgery I couldn't keep anything down because the swelling in my stomach and esophagus was so severe nothing was passing through. I also developed pneumonia and m y left lung collapsed. They also thought I had a blood clot (which I did not). So I had a lot of complications and still was only in 4 days.

Okay, I must be abnormal. I didn't stay the night. I was scheduled for surgery at 10:45 but started close to 2. I was ready to go by 7:30. The doctor was hesitant to let me go but I was out by 9pm. Anyone else not stay the night?

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
